VICKI'S ESCAPE TRANSFORMATION 27 Sep 2016

Vicki
 Left to right: Lithe Escape day-one, eight inches lost on Escape day six, and 12 lbs. lost and lessons learned and a healthier lifestyle six months later.
 
I signed up for Lithe Escape because it was an easy way for me to travel internationally for the first time and I was hoping to get myself on better track with my personal fitness goals. I knew it was going to be a great trip based off of speaking with previous Escapees, but I never expected it to have such a lasting impact. The few weeks leading up to Escape were a whirlwind: I ended a three-year relationship, I moved, and I was going through a rough patch at work. In fact, the night before we were supposed to leave I almost had to cancel because of all of my work obligations. But thankfully I was able to make it work because I needed a vacation. 
 
I don't think I ever worked harder in my entire life than I did the five days we were in Jamaica, and I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and used to literally get my butt kicked multiple days a week. But despite how much my body protested the heat, the sweat, the squats, the laps, flipping tires... I wanted to push myself and woke up each day ready for more. I attribute that desire to drive myself to the amazing group of people I was with on Escape, none of whom I ever would have met if not for Lithe. We cheered each other on, pushed each other to do one more rep, and never let anyone fall behind. Jamaica was beautiful, Jake's was great, but the friendships I made were priceless. 
 
At the end of our six-day trip I had lost eight inches. The very next day at work my associates and noticed a difference. However, the best part was how much stronger I felt at my first Lithe class back (Thinny with Jonathan) and being able to get through all of the push ups and seesaws, which I had never been able to do previously. Seeing what I was capable on at Escape really motivated me to keep pushing, and since Escape in May I have continued to lose inches (from a size 4/6 in pants to a 0/2) and lost 12 pounds. Even better than all of the physical changes was the positive impact on my health. I have always had neurological and immune issues that require a lot of medication, doctors appointments, hospitalizations, and is a constant source of stress. Since committing to continuing my healthy journey from Lithe Escape I was able to come off some of my medications (one being an anti-anxiety medication I had been on for years), have not had to make any emergency room visits for migraines, and my doctors have suggested less frequent appointments. I haven't been so healthy overall since high school. 
 
I am so thankful to Lauren, my Lithe team members, and the Lithe community (especially my Escape family!). Thank you for supporting me in my progress and pushing me to improve.
 
Love,
Vicki

LITHE ESCAPE FALL 2016 26 May 2016

OceanView2Ocean View3 Jake's

Lithe Escape is heading back to Jake's November 3-8, 2016! Jake's is earthy, friendly, rugged, red, rustic, local, sustainable and hip. It's the epitome of bohemian luxury.

The backstory: A good friend introduced Lauren to Treasure Beach in 2008, and she fell in love with the area, the welcoming community, and the friends that she made there. Treasure Beach and Jamaica's south coast are the antithesis of a tourist trap. It's off the beaten path, but it hasn't stopped her from returning again and again.

Treasure Beach is a tiny fishing village and the community there is truly unlike any other in Jamaica. Defined by the Santa Cruz Mountains and the rolling farmland of the Pedro Plains, Treasure Beach is known for its cacti, endless natural coastlines, and miles of sweeping savannas — not its white sand beaches or jungle-like rain forests. Treasure Beach is renowned for its warm people, deep community spirit, and rich history (which even includes a Scottish shipwreck from the 19th century). 

Full Disclosure: This is the real Jamaica. It's almost a 3-hour drive from the airport, so get ready for an adventure that you'll never forget and to fall in love with a place where you'll most certainly leave your heart. 

What is Lithe Escape? Imagine one week to focus on yourself ... a better body, more confidence, lessons learned, fabulous food and fitness, inches and pounds lost (without going hungry), unparalleled results, and an entire support system of like-minded people. Get excited for girl time and downtime, a healthier body and mind, unbelievably delicious food, and a week that's all about you

Coming to Jake's? Grab your girls and get ready for the time of your life. If there's one thing we feel that we've truly nailed, it's the art of packing for Lithe Escape. We can squeeze in just under a week's worth of outfits into a carry-on (recycling is key) and have our Escape beauty routine down to a minimum. We're pretty confident when we say we've got this one. Here's what you'll need.

RUN THE BEACH! {2015 REPOST} 13 Apr 2016

Triangl1 Triangl

Happy April! Summer starts in 6 weeks, and we're ready to run the beach! Spring has sprung, so it’s time to soak up the sunshine, get prepped to rock that Earned In Winter body, and spend time with friends and family. I miss the concept of having a true spring break in my life — taking a week long break from work to reset and refresh (and lay on the beach with margarita in hand).

In honor of my much-anticipated break (and our upcoming Lithe Escape), I'm sharing some bikini tips with you.  A fantastic bikini is always the first item I pack when I’m traveling somewhere warm. These Triangl bikinis are my swimwear picks for the season. I love the supportive neoprene fabric, bright neon colors, and fantastic fit. 

If you choose to wear a bikini, you should show off your Lithe-earned body in a suit that you feel comfortable and confident in. Any Jane can wear a bikini, but to feel confident in a bikini is another story. Here are some tips so that you can run the beach: 

Try EVERYTHING on. Suits look completely different on your body than on the hanger. Untie first – you need to adjust the straps to your body (not the girl’s who tried it on before you) or you won’t get the right look or fit. 

Stringin' it? If you have a top with strings, tie it in the back first, and then stretch the cups over your breasts before tying behind your neck. Got a bottom with strings? Tie it so it sits on your hip bone. Don't go too low or even worse, too high. (Hello, David Lee Roth circa "California Girls.")

When a suit fits, you don’t get any “overspill.” Remember that everything has a place — inside your suit.  Watch out for super-skinny straps ... Narrow straps are rarely flattering and create back bulge if you have even a little meat on your bones.

Lithe it up! I highly recommend our Essential Workouts. Skinny Jeans and High Mini classes are our blueprint. Both tone your body and build your Lithe muscular structure with a quickness. 

Eat Lithe whenever possible. Eating Lithe (eating clean) will not only get you into your bikini, but it also makes you feel Lithe inside. Keep whole food (preferably raw) snacks on-hand at all times to keep energy levels up and hunger at bay. 

Lastly, check yourself before you wreck yourself – in a three-way mirror, that is. You want to be sure you look great from all angles. Once you find a perfect fit, take note of the brand. Companies rarely change their fit from year to year. It’ll make next year’s shopping that much easier!

LITHE SPRING CLEAN WEEK 1! 18 Mar 2016

LSC

Here's our #lithespringclean menu for week 1! Just like our Lithe Foods/Lithe Escape food philosophy, you'll notice that our menus are based on lean, local, mostly seasonal and detoxifying, whole foods. Our menus coincide with our lifestyle of hard work and consistency, so Monday through Friday you'll want to follow the rules. Moderation is the key for long-term success, so Saturday and Sunday are yours to eat as you please!   

This menu is exactly what Lauren eats when she preps for a photo shoot or special event. If it feels spartan to you, that's because it is. For the next five days we are creating a caloric deficit, reducing bloat, and burning off the layer of fat that sits on top of our muscles. 

Remember to drink 64 ounces of water every day, and Lithe 5-6 days a week. Good luck. You can do it!

Both Lithe retreats are life-changing and built on the same principals, but Lithe WKND and Lithe Escape are quite different. Check out the details above to find out which one is the right fit for you. We know that it's tough to put a number on a great time and amazing results, but pricing varies and is dependent on the country, location, and resort.
